Legal-writing symposium at Washburn Law School

If you’re going to be anywhere near Topeka, Kansas on March 9 or 10, then you may want to sign up for The Art of Advocacy: Writing to Win, a two-day legal-writing symposium sponsored by the Center for Excellence in Advocacy at Washburn University Law School. The program features a slew of judges from the federal and Kansas benches, plus several law-school professors and some practicing lawyers — something for everyone. The best feature of this seminar, though, is the price: it’ complimentary. But you must pre-register by telephone. Seating is limited, so first-come, first served.

The symposium is being held in conjunction with a 4-hour CLE program titled The Art of Advocacy Not-So-Secret Tips for Writing Effective, Persuasive, and Ethical Legal Briefs. The CLE, alas, is not free; the 4 hours’ credit (including 1 hour of ethics) will cost you $120. But the program looks worthwhile; the CLE speakers are all faculty members of Washburn Law School.
